I'm sure if you've visited this page you may wonder what's this all about? Why the sudden interest in high sensation seeking? What exactly IS high sensation seeking. At last...the reveal:
Several years ago I started thinking about how some people tend to complicate their lives more than seemed necessary. People who were always running late, never and had offices that looked kinda like a ticker tape parade. They almost invited chaos into their lives. Although only slightly related, looking through journal articles I discovered a description of a particular personality type. I high sensation seeking personality type. These individuals are adrenaline lovers and buzz junkies. But it's more than you might think. There are 4 pieces to the buzz junkie.
1 They love thrill and new adventures.
2 They get board easily (with people and experiences).
3 They seek new mental and physical experiences.
4 They are impulsive and some times uninhibited.
Before you get too frightened, there are 2 things to remember. First, we all seek the buzz. It isn't inherently bad. It's just a few of the buzz junkies are so drawn to exciting experiences that they get themselves into trouble with their buzz seeking habits.
This leads me to today. I'm writing a book about buzz junkies and creating a page for research (this one) and a companion page (soon) to gather and share stories about buzz junkies.
Thanks for joining me on this journey and please share this with your friends who might get a buzz from this research.
